Nissan Heritage

Nissan Motor Co. Ltd. has launched an amazing website chronicling its illustrious 95-year history with stories, milestones, reference data and photography.  The various decades show clearly the evolution of the modern Japanese motorcar beginning officially in 1933 where Jidosha Seizo Co., Ltd., predecessor of Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., was established in Yokohama with paid-in capital of ¥10,000,000.  Head over and see early versions of the GT-R, Fairlady Z as well as domestic (Japan) passenger vehicles and electric cars as well.  With all the beautiful images and history to pore over, its definitely NSFW.

The Month of March

A Recap of our discoveries in March.

LeSportsac × BEAMS / Spring 2015

BEAMS Japan have collaborated with LeSportsac on a new bag line with a clever synthesis of a Native American motif and the BEAMS 'Jacquard' logo.   The range covers everything from the Extra-Large Weekender to knapsacks to card holders.  These lightweight, versatile and easy to maintain bags have the LeSportsac DNA that have made the company a fashion juggernaut in the late 70's, 80's and 90's.  BEAMs Co., Ltd, founded in 1982 continues to innovate with clever products and collaborations such as this.
